Artist and Empire

This autumn Tate Britain presents Artist and Empire, a major exhibition of art associated with the British Empire from the 16th century to the present day. Shown is George Stubbs' Cheetah and Stag with Two Indians (1760–1770) borrowed from Manchester Art Gallery for the show. The two Indians seem to be trying to persuade the cheetah to chase the stag, but puss can't be bothered. This painting is one of a "vast array of objects" from collections across Britain, Prices are £14.50 adults, £12.70 silver surfers.
